Matsuyama JALT:

Learning through Images & Actions

Date: Sunday, March 14th, 2004 Time: 2:15 PM - 4:15 PM

Speaker: Paul Shimizu, Intercom Press

Paul Shimizu will do a presentation using only images and actions. There will be no reading. The focus of the presentation is response before production. The presenter will take the participants through a variety of activities which elicit immediate non-verbal response from the students (OPR-Only Physical Response). These activities elicit more than just imperative language. The presenter will then, using the same images, take the participants through a variety of student-centered group activities with the emphasis on verbal production. Paul Shimizu has been teaching and developing educational materials for more than 30 years, 15 of them in Japan. His students have ranged from kindergarten to university and beyond.
